What's New?

On this page you will find information on the latest features, functionality, enhancements and content updates for SAGE Research Methods.


Now Live: SAGE Research Methods Datasets

SAGE Research Methods Datasets is a collection of teaching datasets that can be used to support the teaching and independent learning of quantitative and qualitative analytical methods used in the social sciences. These are datasets taken from larger national and international data sources, cleaned and reduced in size and complexity for teaching and self-study purposes, perfect for researchers learning a new method or brushing up on an old one.


2015 New Titles Now Live!

2014 Enhancements

  • Improved search results pages are now live!

          * Discipline tagging across all content--you can now search for the content most relevant to your area of study

        * Search results page now includes a brief definition of the method searched

        * Curated search results: the top 5 results for the top search terms have been hand-selected by methods experts, ensuring the most important texts appear front and center

        * Improved search functionality with use of synonyms 

            * Related content now includes Broader and Narrower Terms to help users discover related methods

  • Padlock icons will now appear next to titles in search results lists for content not subscribed to. For instance, these will appear next to Cases titles for customers who have access to SRM, but not SRM Cases.

  • Database Report 1 (DR1): Total Searches, Result Clicks and Record Views by Month and Database
